Airport & car park

Airport & car park

Whether your requirement is for airside use, with perimeter seating and high standing capacities; or for a car park shuttle, we are able to offer vehicles both from our fleet and also custom built from the manufacturer.

This often means that buses have to be configured specifically to have a good mix of passenger space and also luggage racking to accommodate the traveller’s baggage. Mistral has extensive experience of working with parking companies to configure the interior saloon to maintain DDA compliance whilst still offering the best use of space to accommodate the needs of the passenger and also safely store luggage.

Airport & car park bus uses include:

Airside

Landside

Staff car parks, crew movements and customer car parking all require flexible vehicles capable of moving people and luggage quickly and efficiently. Our extensive experience of working with many of the UK’s airports, including Heathrow, Southampton, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stansted and Manchester make us ideally positioned to respond to your specific requirements.

Longer distance crew movements can also be accommodated with the lease of a midi or full size coach.

Car park & shuttle buses

Passengers arriving at remote parking locations in the vicinity of the airport require shuttle buses to transport them to the terminals.

Heathrow Airport

We have worked with a number of operators at Heathrow to provide a variety of solutions for both short and long-term requirements on the airport.

Short-term contract

Heathrow is a dynamic site and as such there are often developments taking place that necessitate car parks being moved from one location to another. This drives a requirement for extra buses to provide short- term service to move passengers, staff or car hire customers between car parks and the various terminal buildings. Mistral has worked with specialist on-site operators to provide vehicles to cover these contractual requirements, flexing the contract length to be adaptable to the ever-changing needs of the airport management.

Long-term contract

Additionally Mistral have also worked on longer term requirements with a leading airline to provide a dedicated staff shuttle bus to move their employees from remote car parks to their office building. The vehicle was specified by the airline to meet their requirements and Mistral has provided a long-term funding solution to allow them to operate a new vehicle with no concerns regarding vehicle disposal at the end of the contract or depreciation during ownership. At the conclusion of the contract Mistral will simply take the vehicle back into its fleet allowing the airline to take another new vehicle or modify its requirements.
